Adirondack

Hi,
I'd like to spend few days around Lake George and have me and my wife riding around on nice scenery road.
Gravel is not the target, but some won't hurt.
I'm searching on ADV, thanks for your advices

Go to Americade in a few weeks and you'll be all set.

I would suggest County numbered routes in Essex County (at the north end of Lake George)

Thanx Randyo
I found a bunch of track named Rutland Loop (north, south, east), I guess that's what you suggest... I'll try them

Don't go anywhere near the Central East Adirondacks during Americade if you want to ride in something other than a slow moving, foot dragging, clutch slipping, poorly jetted/eyes watering parade of straight piped "rugged individualists".

The Eastern 'Daks in general is beautiful, but from where I'm sitting (my unique perspective, mind), there's too damn many people there in the summertime. Explore the rest of the Adirondacks and just pick a road...any road.

My 2 cents worth 30 north of northville, 73 out of lake placid cant hurt if you can fit any of that into your plans and take a ride up whiteface memorial highway.

Stay off the State numbered highways and on the County roads helps avoid traffic

heres a link to a 160 mile loop starting and ending in Crown Point that I can recommend

http://goo.gl/maps/4TRIl

this loop will allow you to take in Whiteface
